Overview

About the property

Villa in Flayosc, Nr. Draguignan, Var, Provence, - Peaceful Location 15 Minutes Walk To Lovely Provencal village

This lovely 4 bedroom 3 bathroom villa is situated a mere 15 minutes walk from the lively Provençal village of Flayosc, a traditional hilltop village known as the gateway to the Haut Var. The villa, which is fully air conditioned and has its own heated pool, is private and spacious offering comfortable open plan ground floor living accommodation. Two bedrooms and shower rooms are at ground floor level offering ideal accommodation for those with limited mobility. The gardens are planted with mature shrubs and small trees offering shade and privacy. There is a boules area at the side of the house and a set of boules is provided along with some other outdoor toys. Flayosc is ideally situated only 30 minutes from the A8 autoroute, about 1 hour's drive from Nice and halfway between the Mediterranean and the Gorges du Verdon. There is much to do here - walking in the countryside through vineyards and olive groves; sampling the local wines (lots of good domaines around Lorgues and Les Arcs). The former railway track is ideal for cycling and walking and is now section 8 of the EuroVelo track which will eventually allow cycling from southern Spain around the Mediterranean basin to Greece.

Exceptional Villa

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 2 weeks at La Belugue. All the facilities you could need for a great holiday. Fantastic pool which the children loved and spent hours in most days.

Lovely terrace to sit on for lunch/dinner and plenty of seating areas around the Villa to avoid the sun. Nice new seating area which we used a lost in the evenings.

Torn between spending time at the Villa and getting out and about and seeing some of the sights. The Village of Flayosc is only a short walk away and has a variety of shops and restaurants with a market on Monday mornings.

Judith was very helpful and booked a restaurant at Chateaudouble (La Tour). Lovely scenic drive and great views from the terrace of the restaurant along with a great meal.

A must is a trip to the Verdon Gorge - fantastic views but be careful if you don't like heights !!. We arranged a rafting trip on the Verdon river but you do need to book in advance.

Overall a terrific couple of weeks

Great property in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Large pool, great outdoor areas, comfortable accommodation with all mod cons and very well equipped. Local town good and only 20 min walk. Need to drive but can reach a lot of different areas in 1hr - 1.5hr (distances not far but roads quite windy). We did Cannes, Nice, St.Tropez, Gorge du Verdon and much more.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic 3 weeks in this great house. We were a family of 6 including 2 young children and 2 grandparents. It had all the facilities that we could possibly need as advertised. The house is well maintained with properly sealed pvc double glazing all round. All rooms were air conditioned and this was needed as it was a hot summer. Full UK television which doesn't usually bother us however it was the World Cup this year. The stroll into town took about 20 minutes with our 5 year old which was not a problem, just take a torch for the way back as the villa road has no street lighting.

The pool heating made a huge difference. We stayed somewhere else in Flayosc last year and the pool there was turning our daughters lips blue. This year both girls spent most days playing in it. The only very slight criticism is that it would be nice to get the pool professionally cleaned every week or buy a swimming pool hoover. The water was clean and a net provided (and brushes) but the pool floor got very dirty with dead ants and detritis from the trees. It took half an hour each day to try and scrape up this debris with the net and I couldn't clean up all the dirt particles with it.

Judith and Keith were very helpful and friendly as was the lady who came to water the garden.

I fully recommend the house and we hope to return one day for another visit to Flayosc.

Thanks again Judith and Keith!

Lovely traditional french home in Flayosc

  • 4 of 5

Lovely quiet villa set in nice gardens with pool. Very spacious and ideal for large families although equally as good for small groups who like some space. Judith and Kieth very helpful if you need any advice or help.

For convenience a gas BBQ would have been nice instead of charcoal.

Pool area very good with plenty of lounges and shade if needed.

Excellent stay for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 2 weeks at La Belugue 8-22/07/2017. The villa is in Flayosc 1h15min drive from Nice airport. It is very private and the pool is lovely. Well furnished indoors with a lovely outdoor sitting area and garden. The description and the photos fall short in describing the villa and its amenities. The walk to the village is 10-15 min. We loved the 2 Boulangerie's, the deli, and weekly monday market in the village. Restaurants in the village are good too. Lovely meal at "Le Nid" one evening. Fresh croissants and baguettes are delicious. Visits to nearlby provencal villages were also a highlight Villecroze, Cotignac etc. Driving to the coast Antibes, Il de Porquerolles, Verdon gorge was a 60-90 min journey but worthwhile. The caretaker Judith was very helpful and very friendly. Overall a very lovely family holiday!!

A wonderful relaxing place to stay with everything you could possibly ask for.

  • 5 of 5

We took our 3 adult children and a boyfriend (now fiance!) on holiday. We have just returned from a week at La Beluge in blazing sunshine and soaring temperatures! The swimming pool was a wonderful resource, and very well used! The grounds of the house are perfect for these sorts of temperatures with plenty of shady areas as well as attractive poolside sunny parts.

The house itself was lovely and spacious and cool with very effective and quiet air-conditioning - meaning that nights were very manageable. Judith was extremely helpful and efficient at solving minor issues for us making our stay extremely easy and relaxing.

Flayosc and surrounding area was quiet and seemed fairly untouristy - would definitely recommend to anyone seeking a quiet relaxing break.

Map

Coast/Beach:

The Riviera is only a short drive away - St Maxime, St Raphael, Cannes, Antibes amongst many other Mediterranean towns and villages. Of course St Tropez is also easily accessible - but remember to take a water taxi from St Maxime in the summer months to avoid the traffic jams to this popular resort situated on a peninsula! Don't forget that there are also beaches at Lac St Croix which are much quieter and just as good if not quite as glamorous as the Côte d'Azur!

Travel:

The villa is easily accessed by air (Nice 90 kms, Toulon 79kms and also Marseille), TGV train (Les Arcs-Draguignan - 15kms) and by road (Junction 36 at Le Muy, A8). Car hire is advisable if you wish to take advantage of all of the wonderful villages, the Gorges du Verdon and the coast. However, the village with a huge variety of shops and services is only 15 minutes by foot so visitors may be self sufficient without transport.

Distances:

The lovely village of Tourtour is 13 kms drive. Les Arcs with its lovely medieval quarter is 15 kms. The fantastic Gorges du Verdon is less than one hour away. Avignon and its famous bridge is a 2 hour drive.

Further Details:

The village is well equipped with 2 small supermarkets, fresh fish shop, butcher, delicatessen,2 bakers, chemist, 3 doctors, a dentist, bank, post office, gift shops, 4 bars 2 of which serve food and (at last count) 8 restaurants! A famous truffle restaurant is to be found in a nearby village 15 minutes' drive away. The local town of Draguignan is only 8kms away and has large supermarkets and a variety of shops. Provençal markets are held in the local villages almost every day of the week: Monday Flayosc, Tuesday Lorgues, Wednesday Draguignan, Thursday Bargemom, Friday Le Luc en Provence, Saturday Aups and Draguignan amongst many others. Flayosc is ideally situated half way between the spectacular Gorges du Verdon and the sophisticated Mediterranean coast. From here you can easily visit Monaco, Nice, Cannes, Antibes, St Tropez, Marseille and the wonderful cities of Aix-en-Provence, Avignon and Orange are accessible too.
